Africa Solar Powered Internet Schools

At what point do you give up on a child? Sub-Saharan Africa has made big strides in education over the past two decades. Samsung's Solar Powered Internet Schools Program in Africa provides a technology-rich learning and teaching environment, prosperous countries depend on skilled and educated workers.

Sub-Saharan African governments have combined political will with positive action to get girls and boys into school and provide them with a quality education

The benefits of investing in education in the region are evident and the results are tangible. There is still a very long way to go, 30 million of the world's 58 million out-of-school, primary age children live in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Education is critical for development and helps lay the foundations for social well-being, economic growth and security, gender equality and peace. Prosperous countries depend on skilled and educated workers.

Every child has the right to go to school. Samsung's Internet Schools Program makes use of mobile devices, e-boards, and educational software for K-12 education and the best part of the learning experience is the devices are solar powered.

Samsung's Solar Powered Internet Schools Program in Africa provides a technology rich learning and teaching environment to K-12 classrooms across five countries in Africa as a pilot program. 

Samsung's solar powered internet schools are located in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. From 2012-2015 Samsung's goal was to reach 2.5 million children by addressing a common resource challenge faced by rural African communities, access to affordable and reliable electricity. Education helps protect workers from exploitation by increasing their opportunities. Education is a powerful tool.

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschi√łt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
For the rich people of the world the main issue in life is that of overeating while people in the third world are dying every day from hunger. 
The misery of imbalanced wealth distribution is creating floods of refugees. However the rich only want to preserve their privileges and take measures so harsh against the poor, they betray their morals …

Charging Cell Phones in Rural Africa

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas. 

Living off-grid may be a lifestyle choice to some and a fact of everyday living to the poorest of the poor. However, tiny rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency LED lights across the African continent could provide enough electricity to charge cell phones. 

Cell phones are vital for people in rural areas with no access to banks in order to send and receive money, access medical care and stay in contact with family and friends.
What does Off-Grid Mean? Off the grid (off-grid) means creating your own self-sufficient environment and being able to operate completely independently of all trad…

Nature Holds Many Secrets | Hurricanes, Angry African Ancestors

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…
